Bulgaria has a long, storied past that’s exhibited in its architecture, artwork and museums. History buffs can find holiday lettings near Boyana Church, a fresco-filled church with art dating back to the late 900s, and Tsarevets, a grand, medieval fortress and palace with shows about Bulgarian history.

Beaches

Best beaches near Bulgaria holiday homes

Holiday homes are available near beach locales like Marina Dinevi, a yacht harbour and resort with high-end spas and restaurants and a pristine beach with clear water, and Harmanite Beach, a Blue Flag beach with calm, shallow water perfect for children. For a more relaxing beach experience, Pomorie Beach, a serene beach that’s popular for older travellers, and Kara Dere Beach, a wild beach with campsites and no nearby cities or amenities, are good choices. One of the most unique, must-see attractions is the National Historical Museum, which houses hundreds of thousands of artefacts of Bulgaria’s history from prehistoric times to its recent communist past.
